Running an aux. power cord

Since I no longer have a mouse hole to run my extension cord for my electric heater, I must find a solution. I could run it under the dinette and out the door of the storage bay, but that would mean leaving the outside door open.
Has anyone run an extension cord past the seals on a slide?

I have run one thru the seal in our old tt. Works well. To keep critters from climbing it, I took the male end off, slid a funnel on, then reattached the end. Funnel stays on the cord and mice can't climb past it (I think) worked for me

You can buy an exterior male 110V receptacle to run the extension cord to. I have one mounted and wired to a dedicated plug inside to run an extra heater if needed. You probably can only use the 20A outlet at the site post for extra power if it's 20/30/50A. If it's 20/30A service, the max is most likely limited to 30A as both outlets are usually supplied with the same wire.
